Life is a never ending struggle from minute to minute. Form the time we wake up, we have a million and one decisions to make from what to make for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to who’s picking up the kids from school and how we can get that company to accept the deal. Sometimes those decisions end up costing us a great price.
We can get lost in addiction trying to keep up and sometimes our bad decision is as simple as forgetting to wait on the light to turn green. Either way, we are in constant need of recovery from something. With the evolution of technology, that is not only possible, it’s light years faster than it used to be. Below are three of the ways technology is helping us recover.
Recover From An Accident
If you have ever been in a car accident, broken a bone, or been very ill, you know that without the technology in the medical field, you might be up a creek without a paddle. Thanks to decades of research, we now have light bulbs that disinfect the patient’s room, electronic underwear that prevent bed sores, and the world’s first robotic nurse.
There are also such wonderful advancements in prosthetics that the bionic woman would be jealous. Have you received an injury to your eye or have a detached retina? Technology now supports an artificial retina.
For you Star Trek nerds, an actual working tricorder is just around the corner. This would allow doctors a much easier way to run multiple basic test on incoming patients and save countless minutes that could be invested in greater emergencies.
Recover From Addiction
Unfortunately, drug and alcohol addiction continue to be an issue all over the world. Life is hard, no doubt, and at least one third of the population of the United States has used drugs or alcohol to “fix” the problem at one time or another.
However, many of those sadly become addicted. This ruins their mind, body, and affects those around them greatly. With the invention of the internet, rehabilitation centers all over the world took advantage of the opportunity to reach millions with one click. Being so easy to find also eliminates the embarrassing need to involve multiple people.
When someone takes their first drink or their first hit, they never do it with the intention of becoming an addict. Having rehab centers so accessible on the web allows the addict the privacy of recovery out of the sight of the public.
Recover From The Day
Lastly, how many of us just can’t wait to get home from a long day’s work and clean the house? Hmmm… no hands huh? That’s because even the strongest of us need to recover from our daily routine.
Like a cell phone battery, if we don’t recharge, eventually we just stop working. Many of us use every day tech to rest, relax, and get ready for the next day. For some, it’s as simple as sitting down in our favorite chair and chilling out with our favorite television show.
For others, it might listening to our jam on apps like Pandora or Spotify while cooking a tasty dinner. Still others might just head to bed and enjoy the massage setting on their high tech mattress.
Whatever the need, technology is doing a great job of helping us recover from the world’s daily bombardment of physical and mental stress. Wonder what they will think of next.
